Volunteers celebrate with laughing

LAUGHTER filled South Grafton’s New School of Arts Hall yesterday when volunteers from a range of non-profit organisations congregated for Volunteering Clarence Valley’s annual Volunteer Week celebration.

From a “laughter yoga” session with a Yamba Wellbeing Centre representative to a magic and stand-up routine by a Krazy Komedy Krew comedian, about 50 hard-working Valley volunteers enjoyed a well-deserved chuckle at the event.

Co-ordinator Traci O’Mullane said the morning’s giggle-fest set “a nice vibe for the day”, which also included morning tea, pamper sessions and a singing performance by preschoolers from the New School of Arts child care centre.

Ms O’Mullane thanked the participating local businesses for their “amazing support” of the event.

She also paid tribute to the “fantastic” efforts of Volunteering Clarence Valley’s Sue Burke, who helped organise the day.
